At the time I bought this pair it was around $30. That may not seem like a lot of money for headphones, even by the standards back then, but it was a lot for a college kid like me. I wanted to get to headphones without busting into my savings, and this was the sure-fire bet.
Plus, at the time, I was more into trying different restaurants with friends than buying things to use for my own personal pleasure at home.
But I digress.
Right when I got this at my college mailroom I went to my dorm, got my iPod Video, and plunked down on my bed. With these I right away heard the difference.
I don't know all the terminology used by audiophiles, but I can say that I heard more clarity in my music. There were sounds I didn't hear before, especially from The Beatles, and overall the sound was more pure. Granted, my files at the time were in MP3 and whatever else Apple imposed, but I still could tell a difference.
After some years, I know there are better cans out there. My next purchase will be Audio-Technica's ATH-M50s, coiled, but for now I'm going to keep using these until they break. They've treated me well over the years, so I shouldn't abandon them.
That said, there are some things I wish they'd change, even if the price is pretty low. The comfort on these is okay, but my ears begin to ache after half an hour, which really isn't that long. Also, the cord is FAR too long. I get they're trying to make these as convenient as possible, but I felt they could've added an extension cable instead. The headphones came with this nice little plastic piece that wraps the cord up, but it does a terrible job of keeping it wrapped. The cord always comes loose.
Those are my only gripes.
Like I said, these headphones have treated me very well over the years. They're built well, and now I'm a Sennheiser fanatic for life. Sure, my next purchase for headphones will be an Audio-Technica, but after THAT I plan on purchasing solely Sennheisers. My budget for quality headphones will get only higher.
If you're an audiophile (or even if you know what an audiophile is) then you're probably wasting your time reading this review. But, if you're like me, just someone who loves listening to music without outside influence, i.e. ambient noise, by all means read on.
As much as I love the joyful, and sometimes not so joyful, sounds of family, the occasional passionate exchange of opposing views with my wife, (especially when I'm on the receiving end), and a good movie or television program, my refuge lies in the solitude of music. Solitude being the operative word here. That much sought-after beautiful isolation evaded me until I purchased the Sennheiser HD 202 headphones.
In the four days I've had them, I've managed to listen, without interruption, to the music on my iPod and computer. And, even as I write this review, judging by the angry expression on my blushing bride's beautiful face, the rapid movement of her lips, and some pretty aggressive-looking body language, I'd say these headphones have more than earned the five stars I've given them. With any luck at all, I'll go completely deaf before I have to take them off and face the music of life.
The only other 4.5 star-rated headphones that I saw on Amazon were made by Bose (I'm sure my wife preferred my old Bose headphones over the Sennheiser HD 202's, since I never missed a word she uttered while I was wearing the Bose cans), and they were almost ten times the cost of the HD 202's. The sound quality of the HD 202 headphones is beautiful; the leatherette ear pads are soft and well cushioned; the adjustable headband is lightweight and the crown padding feels great on my follicle-deficient pate; the included belt-clip/cord take-up is a nice additional touch; and they're made for indoor and outdoor use to boot.
And so, at the risk of missing some annoying telemarketing calls, shrieking fire alarms, angry neighbor dogs barking, loud train whistles blaring, and what appear to be some pretty angry spousal verbalizations over being ignored, I'm keeping my Sennheiser HD 202 headphones. They're everything Sennheiser says they are!
